A must visit for any tourist in Bali, Beautiful temple in a beautiful setting.

Fascinating insight into Balinese culture and heir religious beliefs and practices. You are unable to enter the actual temple unless you are worshipping however this is obviously understandable and you can see into almost all of the temple from walls.

Monkeys more aggressive here than Ubud due to lack of food and their favourite trick is to steal tourist item (glasses,shoes, camera) and then trade them back for food.

5*

Well it was about time. Finally got the family here. Wonderful views and managed to get the right seating as we waited for the sun to go down. The performance of the Kecak Dance was enjoyable and a quality performance. Well worth seeing.

The temple is located on the edge of the cliff. Very beautiful scenery, endless blue open sea and great wave. Be careful with the monkey, they can take your stuff.

A long trip to Pura Uluvatu. As the name suggests, this temple (pura in Balinese) is built at the edge (ulu) of a 230 ft cliff or rock (watu) projecting into the sea. In folklore, this rock is said to be part of the water goddess Dewi Danu's petrified boat. Though a small temple was claimed to have existed earlier, the structure was significantly expanded by a Javanese Hindu sage, Empu Kuturan in the 11th Century. Another Hindu sage from East Java, Dang Hyang Nirartha is credited for constructing the padmasana shrines and it is said that he attained moksha here.

We were lucky to visit the temple on one of their bi-annual festival days and watch the festivities. The place is infested with monkeys who are notorious for snatching things and trading them for food.

Uluwatu is a place on the south-western tip of the Bukit Peninsula of Bali, and borders the Indian Ocean on the south. Watching the sunset from the rock, with the vast expanse of the ocean, is a visual treat. A must see if you are visiting Bali. Don’t let the distance deter you.

The place really nice just be careful with the monkey the really naughty like they will take you stuff and run until you trade them with something in return but the view was amazing the sunset is soo soo soo beautiful like worthy to stay and watch and the show was really nice a quite bit long but its ok the story was nice you will enjoy it
But the only two things you will not like is the road is too long and busy and the monkey doesn’t appear everyday you can go and nothing is there
